June 24, 2006
I remember being at Shea with my father for this game. He and I used to go to at least one game a year when I was a kid. It was a sunny and hot July Sunday, and Hammer'in Hank knocked 2 out against the Mets. I was disappointed the Mets were never in this game, and lost it 4-2. Looking back it was fun to be with my Dad and head out to the ball park, watch a game, and get a few sips of his beer (what a treat). I also got to see some great players in Aaron, Mays, and Neikro play.
